The Water Works at Sabine Street is a major destination and park entry point made possible by reclaiming a four-acre abandoned City of Houston water system site. Atop a partially buried water reservoir will be The Brown Foundation Lawn, a grassy plateau framed by trees with a stunning view of the downtown skyline. With the open-air Hobby Family Pavilion, this elevated site is popular for performances and special events. Visitors can access restrooms and a bike rental facility at the Wortham Insurance Visitor Center, food trucks in an entry court, and parking.


The Wortham Insurance Visitor Center at The Water Works is open Thursday-Monday: 8 am-5 pm.
